I spent most of the 60's and 70's as a musician working really long hard hours, often very well paid, and often not paid at all or little. Loved all
that I did, and some of my work is still knocking about the 'net on sale, and of which I never got a shilling, C'est la vie! Compare that to
another 28 years as an atypical civil servant which I mostly hated, but which was monetarily stable. Well, there is no comparison, the music wins
hands down, and I am back at it, and I still am not at the pension age yet. But the point also is, that I worked just as hard at being a civil
servant, as I did a musician, trying to do as good a job as possible, and that is incredibly hard, but ultimately satisfying.
